The calf injury that knocked him from his Sunday Grapefruit League start might make his inclusion on the list an obvious one, but ask yourself, did that really change anything for you? For me it didn't. It served a reminder that Strasburg is a perennial injury risk, best encapsulated by his having averaged 24.5 starts per 162 Nationals games since the beginning of the 2015 season. I was already fading the right-hander more than most, and maybe this means his ADP will shift into bargain territory, but I'm resistant to drafting him even if he drops a handful of spots. After all, his average fastball velocity declined in each of 2017, 2018 and 2019, and it was a reported 92 mph in his March 9 start. Restoring some of that lost velocity would go a long way towards improving confidence in his ability to bounce back to fantasy-ace status.Pittsburgh Pirates

James has spent the past decade preparing for such a move, though he has been careful not to imply it's an obsession -- or that he would absolutely want to have the type of control Jeter now has or Jordan sought for years.
The Mets win 30 games before the Yankees, +170: The Mets go 39 games before facing Atlanta, then following that series have three at Miami and four against woeful Colorado. The Yankees do have seven games against Baltimore in April, then face Detroit, Houston and Washington before three more against Baltimore and four at Texas. But at -200, the value is bad.

EXTRA BASES: Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Matt Beaty has “earned” a spot on the opening day roster, seemingly closing the door on one of the two bench vacancies thought to be up for grabs. Roberts added that Beaty, who has experience at the corner infield and outfield positions, will share playing time with AJ Pollock and Chris Taylor in left field. He also figures to occasionally spell Max Muncy at first base. Otherwise, he’ll predominately be used as a pinch-hitter.Colorado Rockies

His suit called that performance “the death knell” of his major league career. The Blue Jays designated him for assignment the next day. They had recently converted him from a starter to a reliever, but they offered him no other opportunities to show whether he could succeed in the bullpen.
